We all seem to remember our lowest scoring rounds, but can you remember what it was about your game that was key to the low score?

Delete and re-post in the General category at the bottom of the Forum. Pure putting, BTW, pure.

Ok, I deleted all this guys posts except this one. He kept posting about ball golf and was spamming ball golf promotions. This thread was the only thing relevant to our sport.

Driving and approaches being dead on. In most of my best rounds I hardly had to hit a putt.

My driving should get most of the credit, but my best rounds are when i dont miss any putts inside 30'

I am with osu_buckeyes on this one. If I am on my game, I really do not have to putt.

When I shoot really hot scores it is my driving. Last night at Mt. Airy I shot -6 and made one long putt. I birdied old 11-17 without being outside of 20'.

My putting!!!!!!

It saves my butt ALL the time. Especially on those heavily wooded courses where hitting trees is like a 50% chance lol I can't even tell you how many times a 60 ft. putt has saved me a birdie or par.

Being "in the zone" - whenever I have had that truly good to great round, I was "in the zone" the whole round. By that I mean I was not distracted, I wasn't over thinking shots or worrying about putts, I would just go through a well-paced routine on shots and wasn't really worrying or thinking about how good or bad I was playing. I just played each shot as it came. Now that to me, is why I'm not a good consistent disc golfer. My mind usually wonders and I think too much about everything except the shot I'm making. I can be putting and start thinking about my grandkids or a song, the last missed putt or bad drive, or whatever.  Being "in the zone" is so nice because it happens and you don't even think about it, you just do it.  I can drive, approach and putt fairly good alot of times, but I'm just not able to stay "in the zone" enough to play consistently well. But I keep trying and when I'm in the zone, boy do I love it! That's the part of my game that needs the most help - the mental part.

My "D" Distance is the one thing that was necessary for me to shoot my best rounds at Harbin, I think we would all agree that without distance, it's impossible to shoot -12 and deuce hole 18

I agree with Billy that distance is important to have in your arsenal. I’ve had pretty good distance since I started (9 weeks ago) but my approach and putting sucked. With the improvement of my approach and putting my scores have dropped. I can give the credit for the improvement to playing at Landmark. Hitting T-post make it easier to hit basket.

keeping my drive on the fairway/close to the basket contributed to my best scores.

Not having to putt for birds outside of 15 feet. blush

Was a round at Belmont I scored -8. I got birdie 2's on holes 1,3,4,6,7,10,13,17,18. The only 2 putts I had outside of 30 feet my entire round were holes 5 for par, which I missed for my only bogey 4 of the round, and hole 10, for bird which I made. Everything else was pickup worthy for par or bird.

I'm really on and off on short putts so if I can just elminate putting outside the circle altogether I do pretty good.
